Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Ideal location for a trip to York, being just a ten minute walk to the city , with car parking which meant we could leave it without worrying. Stayed at the top of the house , room clean and nicely decorated, good shower in en-suite and view of minster too! Hosts are doing a great job, very friendly and helpful and hope to stay again one day.

My husband i visited York for our Wedding Anniversey, when i booked on the phone i mentioned this to Diane & when we arrived there was a 'congratulatins' banner on the back of our room door & a small selection of chocolates, nice touch. Our room was small but well decorated & the bathroom was big enough for us. I found the bed a little bit hard but hubby slept well! The Breakfast was amazing, by far the best we have at a guest house, plenty of ceriel, fruit etc & when the full english arrived we were plesently suprised & set up for the day of shopping ahead. When we got home there was an e-mail saying that my hubby had left his phone charger behind & they sent it to us, we said we would send a cheque to pay back he postage but they said not to, it was no problem & when it did arrive it was very well packaged. All in all a very pleasant stay & will not hesitate to return there next ti,e we visit York. :-)

We stayed at the Bowen House after a day in York. It was very comfortable and convenient for the City Centre. Quiet location and private parking. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again when in York,

We have just returned from weekend treat to York. We stopped in the Bowen Guest house and had a lovely time. The room although a little small was spotlessly clean and home from home. The tray in the room couldnt have been better equiped. The hairdryer was a great bonus ( i forgot mine). We stopped in the twin bedded room with private bathroom and although the bathroom wasnt in the room but down 3 little steps it was no inconvenience at all. The breakfast was second to none and catered for all. I wouldnt hesitate to recomend this place at all. Thank you for a great stay.

We were at the Races at York and this B&B was just what we wanted. Its about averagely priced for York, but its in a Good location, with great hosts, comfortable, clean and with a hearty breakfast. They really do seem to do as much as they can for you, and nothing was a problem. No hesitation in recommending fully
